So you want to look stylish but are low on cash? If you are anything like me (you have Champagne taste with a dollar-store wine budget), you want to look cute without breaking the bank. That’s why online shopping may be the best bet for your clothing needs. 

Online shopping provides an excess of options, bursting with new arrivals daily. Perhaps the store you’re visiting sells items exclusively online that you cannot find in-store. There is so much more variety! Online shopping should be fun, easy and time efficient while you can save money, find discounts and receive proper quality clothing. 

Here are some top stores to find fashionable items while on a budget:

1. Uniqlo

Uniqlo is the place to go for low-priced basics like relaxed t-shirts, cardigans, and boyfriend jeans. The brand also keeps up-to-date by providing trendier options like breezy culottes, high-waisted, cut-off shorts, and striped maxi dresses, while the price point on any given item is rarely above $50. 

2. Forever 21

Fashion Nova changed the game in the fashion world all the way back in 2006 when the first store was opened by Richard Saghian in Panorama City, California. Later, online branding was established in early 2013 through social media, showcasing the brand’s sexy and affordable club dresses, jeans, shoes, bodysuits, skirts and more — all for a reasonable price. Their site has a variety of options and is always hosting a sale on select items.
